Cookies

1.Cookies on Mellodycasuals.nl

Around June 5, 2012, new regulations came into force regarding the use of so-called “cookies” on web pages. These rules have been incorporated in Article 11.7a of the Telecommunications Act (Tw). The new regulations also relate to your privacy. Because we think your privacy is very important, we would like to inform you about this subject on this page.

Because the new legislation regarding cookies is not yet entirely clear to all authorities how it will work in practice, Mellodycasuals.nl will continue to closely monitor all developments and do everything it can to continue to comply with the new cookie legislation.
We therefore strive to inform you openly and as completely as possible about cookies that are used on Mellodycasuals.nl. We use cookies to improve the ease of use on the site. We try to filter advertisements to your interests. Below you will find a further explanation about cookies, what they are used for and how, if you wish, you can opt out of cookies. On this web page we will keep you informed about all developments regarding cookies.

2. What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are placed on a computer, telephone or tablet. The cookies are read by the browser (including Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox) when opening an internet page. The maker of a cookie determines what text files he places in the relevant cookie.
As long as you as a user do not enter personal data on the site you have visited, the cookie cannot contain this information. There are direct and indirect cookies, also known as first and third party cookies. In principle, cookies are not dangerous; they are not computer programs and cannot be used to spread computer viruses.

3. Type of cookies

3.1 First party cookie

With a first-party (direct) cookie, the website in question places a cookie with the user who opens the website. First-party cookies have different purposes. One of the purposes is, for example, remembering the user’s login name and remembering items from selected items in a shopping cart.

3.2 Third-party cookie

A third-party cookie “follows” a user for a longer period of time across different websites and is thus able to build a so-called “profile” of a user. These cookies are often used for targeted online advertising. An advertising network then places a cookie on a user’s computer, telephone or tablet via a third-party site. This cookie can be read by the network on the various websites that are located in the advertising network.

3.3 Sharing with social media networks

You will undoubtedly already have experience with companies placing cookies on your computer, tablet or telephone. This happens, for example, when you share products or content from such a site with friends through social networking sites (such as Twitter or Facebook).
